> Several people have written to me correcting our use of the term

> 
> So, please can we use the term "Ubuntu Identity" going forward, when we
> are referring to:
> 
>  - palettes,
>  - styling, themeing
>  - fonts
>  - web and desktop
>  - visual design
> 
> The correct use of "Brand" is when we're referring to the way we are
> perceived. *Hopefully* that converges with our assumed brand values
> (reliable, precise, free, collaborative for Ubuntu, and adding
> accountable and adroit for Canonical).
